Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding solid geometry, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
Once you have the basic framework of your family set up with reference planes,…constraints and parameters, it's time to start adding some geometry.…In this movie, we're going to look at adding solid form geometry to our family.…So, I'm in a file called Adding Solids and it is slightly different than where we…left off in the previous movie. So, you might want to use this one even if…you've been following along on your own. but let me just point out to you what's…different about it. I've added two reference planes here in…the Elevation view, the top one is at two feet seven off the floor and the other one…is at three inches. And both of those I created a dimension…and locked it, and a dimension and locked it.…
So, that's going to establish those two heights and keep them locked at that…distance off the floor. So, that's the only thing I'd change there.…Alright, I want to make sure my floor plan is active.…And if you don't have tiled views, you might want to make sure that you open up…your front and your left in your 3D view and tile them like I've done here.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
